Advance, NC (August 19, 2008) - The start at VIR could not have been better for Larry Pegram and the Ducati 848. Pegram's qualifying time put him in the fourth position on the grid and he convincingly pulled the holeshot, leading the early part of the race. Problems with his front brakes caused him difficulties and kept him from staying at the front of the pack.
Last year Pegram finished on the podium in second place after trading spots with the leader Josh Hayes.
"This was a tough weekend, no doubt. The bike had the speed, but I was having trouble with the front brakes. I was surprised that we didn't finish stronger at VIR, it is definitely a track that I like to race at," commented Pegram.
The next race is August 30, 2008 at Road Atlanta (www.roadatlanta.com).
